Folklore Mondays: Halloween Meltdown ’13 Edition (#2)

This go-round we have a slice of academic folklore history. The clip below is a short excerpt from a 1970 documentary entitled Tales of the Supernatural by folklorist Sharon R. Sherman, professor emerita of folklore at University of Oregon. The content is likely familiar, as stories like The Hook and The Vanishing Hitchhiker are super famous, now as then.

You can watch the entire film online at Folkstreams, an online collection of films related to American folklore.
